Monday Break - Issue 49
Another busy week for us, and more coming this week... stay tuned, we have some cool rides and events for you!
After three weeks of good racing, Jumbo Visma has conquered La Vuelta.
Everything started on the Stage 7, where he entered on the breakaway on the way to Javalambre, from that point everything changed on the team strategy.
The people was with him, cheering at every corner, but it was not until Tourmalet and the timetrial, where he had all the doubts, but he ended performing more than good.
His teammates fightened him on the Alto del Angliru, but he did not lose a lot, so he was still on the lead, and the way to Madrid was pretty clear.
Gravel Earth Series FINAL
This past weekend the last stage of the Gravel Earth Series took place in Cardona. Everybody was exited and nervous for the final result of the series.
In women’s the battle was clear, between Annabel Fisher and Amity Rockwell, but there was some strong riders going strong as our friend Gee, who ended third on the final.
Couldn’t be happier for her!
In men’s the battle was much different, Mattia de Marchi was first, and we had Lukas Baum, who won at Migration Gravel Race, so finally, Lukas went for the win in the Earth Final in Cardona but Mattia was finally the winner of the series, as he had better results on the other races.
